MORNINGTIME 2171
 
By this we know that we love the children of God, WHEN WE LOVE GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. 1 John 5:2. OK, so what commandments do you want to try to keep? The 10 Commandments? The 2 Great Commandments, you know, Love God, and Love your neighbor? Or are there some other commandments we haven't mentioned? Whatever you choose, THEY'RE KEEPABLE. The guys in the Old Testament just didn't have what it took. WE DO, AND HIS NAME IS CHRIST. In and through Him, with and because of Him, we can do it, we CAN keep the commandments. But FIRST, you have to Love the Lord with ALL your heart, soul, mind, and strength. And it's not Love until you Willingly Love Him. This Love must be so freely and willingly given that if the Lord said, "You will die today, will you Trust Me to take care of the details"? Your answer would be a resounding "YES". No, no one is looking for a way to die, I'm just saying, IF the Lord were to say... Here's my point, we MUST be able to do two things first, before the 3rd thing can work. You can SAY you love God all you want, but your words mean nothing if you don't keep His Commandments. And if you can find a way to look like you're keeping His Commandments, but don't Love the Lord, again, you're nothing. Again, no one can truly love ANYONE, of man, until he first loves The Lord, AND Obeys His Laws. Yes, ALL of us can FAKE loving God and man, BUT THE WORLD WILL SEE YOUR FAKERY AND YOU WILL LOSE ALL CREDIBILITY WITH THE WORLD, AND BE SEEN FOR THE HYPOCRITE YOU ARE. And the world is who you're trying to reach. We church people put on airs every Sunday and wonder why we can't get people into church. IT'S BECAUSE WE'RE SEEN FOR THE PHONEY'S WE ARE. You can fool the goats and the christians, but you can't fool the world. We play charades every day the church doors are open, and only fool ourselves, AND WE'RE GOOD AT IT, ASK ANYONE!!! If you SAY you love your neighbor, and don't LOVE AND OBEY GOD, you're a liar on your way to Hell. Liars won't, Be Blessed.
